If you’re planning on taking the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam any time soon, rush right over to CertCities and dredge up well-known security maven Tony Bradley’s excellent advice article “My Top 10 Tips for Preparing and Passing the CISSP Exam.” I’m going to be sitting for this one myself later this month, so I’ve been gathering up my prep resources to get ready for this 6-hour-long marathon exam. You’ll also want to at least look at the following resources as well:
- Books: Shon Harris still rules this roost with her CISSP All-in-One, 5e, but our own (I co-authored this one with James Michael Stewart and Mike Chapple) CISSP Study Guide, 5e, ain’t bad either.
- Prep Sites: Nobody does it better than Clement Dupuis with his www.cccure.org Website. Be sure to check it out, and you’ll find more good resources better and faster there than anywhere else.
This is a tough, demanding exam so be prepared to spend some time, and expend some elbow grease getting ready. I’ll be reporting on the latest version of this exam for PearsonITCertification.com next month, so keep your eyes peeled for advance word, and some “hot links” as soon as they become available.
